The toilet door through which Oscar Pistorius' girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp was shot, has been touted as a critical piece of evidence by a Durban forensic pathologist hired by the Paralympic star's defence.

The pathologist, Reggie Perumal said that it is important to examine the door, which was removed by the police before any scrutiny by Pistorius' defence team, in order to see the trajectory of the bullets and establish the exact position of Steenkamp in the toilet when she was shot, Cape Times reports.

Perumal added that the door is the most crucial piece of evidence in the case next only to the post mortem results. (ANI)
